daily encouragement: do something

And a lovely daily encouragement from one wise man that I love to read about, Mr. Ikeda:

“Rather than sitting around idly and rusting, we must act, give of ourselves and contribute something to the world. The French scholar Robert Arnauld (1588-1674) declared, “Have we not all eternity to rest in?” Why do you seek to rest while you are still alive? he asks. These are venerable words indeed. When young people make truly dedicated efforts, almost punishing themselves, their true brilliance will shine forth.”
